#1 Clue, Friday Nov. 13th :: Less than a hundred, mostly in business.

The first telephone exchange in the State of Georgia was established at Augusta, Georgia August 1, 1879. With seventy eight subscribers, this was only three years after Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone. According to the Augusta Chronicle, almost all the subscribers were businesses.

#2 Clue, Saturday Nov. 14th :: Stay low and be careful of those.

Just as this box is located near the First Telephone Exchange Plaque, it’s also located near the WWI memorial in the median of Greene Street. The First World War was the first time that the telephone was used extensively by generals and their staffs to communicate with front lines and to issue orders. Lines were laid to all forward positions in the trenches. This was very useful in defense. News of enemy attacks could be quickly relayed and forces redeployed. However, the telephone was not much use when you attacked as you could not immediately take the lines with you. If you took an enemy trench you did not have the means to tell your remote commanders where you were or what you needed. The lines were often broken by enemy bombardment and this clue gives the perspective of a soidler in the trenches with the wires running right near them. This box was near to the WWI Memorial and the plaque for the first telephone exchange in the State of Georgia.
